Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, will step out for her first public engagement since the birth of her son at a charity dinner next month.
The Duchess will join Prince William at a Sept. 12 awards dinner for a wildlife conservation organization patronized by her husband, according to an ITV report. Tusk Trust is a charity that protects endangered wildlife in Africa.
Palace officials have not formally confirmed Kate's appearance yet. They told TODAY.com that “an operational note will follow in due course.”
Duchess Kate has not attended an official public event since the July 22 birth of her first child, Prince George. She has spent the past several weeks in the Bucklebury estate belonging to her parents.
Kate's last public appearance was in June when she attended the annual Trooping the Colour ceremony honoring Queen Elizabeth's birthday. She has been on maternity leave ever since.
